COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chicory Stout is a rich, dark beer made with a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort, and licorice root. It is brewed with roast barley, crystal malt and oats and hopped just right with Glacier hops. We use fair trade Organic Mexican Coatepec beans roasted to our specifications by Notting Hill Coffee Roastery in Lewes, DE.

Deep brown. Nose of amaretto, raisins, rum, with a hearty wheat character. Lots of carbonation. Full feel in the mouth, but has an abrasive old leather flavor mixed in with the coffee and malt. Palate is wet, slightly syrupy. But feeling old, damp, and empty at the same time.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2006 POur is a black with a mild tan to light brown head. Lacing is very nice. Aroma is that of coffee. The start is a hit of coffee taste, which lasts and lingers throughout. Not very complicated, but a good taste. The palate is a moderate to heavy. I would recommend this beer to those who are big coffee drinkers. Although, this beer tastes good, I feel it definitely lacks some sophistication and it is too straightforward. A decent brew, though.

Dark body and head. Smooth flavor. Interesting tastes of coffee, hops and roasted chocolate bordering on the tasteful side of peculiar. This stout really had my brain and taste buds going.

Who needs a latte, drink this. Jet black color, big dirty white head. Very coffee-like. Sweetness in flavor. The coffee and bitterness is a little overwhelming. Might be a good dessert beer. Blend with vanilla ice cream? I'm getting a headache just drinking it.

i have no idea whether they really did put all those silly ingredients in or they just put it on the label to get chicory fans to buy it. what is chicory anyway? anyway, nothing too complex and extraordinary here, it tastes like a classy dry stout.lovely aroma of deep malt and coffee. flavour is full of dry malt, upon which is layered just enough coffee, just enough leafy hops, and just enough quenching acidity. very dry, just how i like my stouts.

No "Bone white head", more like a tan/brown head, that dissipates quickly.Black/opaque. Roasty, chocolatey nose, some soapiness alsao.Med/full body. Good mouthfeel. Coffee flavors coming through along with some roastiness. Licoricey notes also in the dry finish. Ok brew

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2003
This was fantastic. Nose was very faintly smokey and lightly roasty, with a touch of chocolate and licorice and coffee. Tremendously well balanced beer, on the dry side of the scale, and an irresistably soft texture, the flavour teases rather than kicking you in the face. Chocolate, subtle roasty coffee bitterness, light smoke. Really fantastic. I could could drink a lot of these in one session, beautiful.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2003
True-to-style dark color; small head. Roasted chocolate malt and coffee bean aroma. Taste was nicely balance by the hops, with just a touch of sweetness. Interesting brew.

Both the beer and the head were noticably lighter than the other stouts I've been tasting. There's also a sharpness present in the flavor that I haven't tasted yet. Is it the chicory. Whatever, I think it'd be stronger if it weren't for the oatmeal. This was a good stout, if only because it stands out from others I've tried. Nothing here I didn't like.

Deep brown with slight tan head. Nose if full of black coffee with hint of licorice. Initial taste is smokey with burnt character. Licorice in middle. Bitterness rises in latter half of swallow, but does not overstay its welcome, and mediates into a nice burnt aftertaste. Slightly tangy.
